Going Beyond The Traditional Psychoanalytic Interpretation Of Ramakrishna S Mystical Visions And Practices, Kakar Clarifies Their Contribution To The Psychic Transformation Of A Mystic And Offers Fresh Insight Into The Relation Between Sexuality And Ecstatic Mysticism.Through A Comparison Of The Healing Techniques Of The Mystical Guru And Those Of The Analyst, Kakar Highlights The Difference In Their Healing Objectives And Reveals The Positive Psychological Aspects Of The Religious Experience.
